Bournville Coleridge Road Allotments volunteers built a pound and wildlife area.


A POND has been built at an allotment site to encourage more wildlife to the area.

People from the Avon Wildlife Trust and The Conservation Volunteers visited the site at Coleridge Road on Weston’s Bournville estate last week.

They helped to build the pond and decking area.

The aim is to provide more learning opportunities for the groups and individuals who use the site.

The allotment is one of three areas on the estate which forms part of Alliance Homes’ lottery-funded Growing Together project.

The scheme helps people grow their own food, learn skills and create vibrant outdoor spaces for people to enjoy.
